MEST Hubs

In Accra, Lagos, Nairobi, and Cape Town, MEST Hubs serve as ecosystem centers and provide 60+ active portfolio companies incubation including on-the-ground support, mentorship and networking across the entire startup lifecycle.

Africa-wide MEST Hubs

MEST provides seed funding and a space in our Africa-wide incubator network, to foster the growth and success of our graduated entrepreneurs. The hubs support our overall mission and provides working space, hands-on support, resources and a vibrant community to help our portfolio companies succeed. Its inception was driven in part by the limited access to seed stage capital and to mentorship opportunities with seasoned entrepreneurs for software startups on the continent.
